The home side are enjoying a good run of results at the moment and are keeping up the pressure on rivals Galatasaray in the race for the league title. They were held to a 1-1 draw by Giresunspor in their last league outing taking the lead via a Michy Batshuayi penalty kick in the first half before their opponents drew level midway through the second.
Fenerbahce sit second in the league table with 68 points from 31 games and will be hopeful of adding to that tally this week.
Trabzonspor have struggled for results of late and have largely underperformed in their title defense. They however returned to winning ways last week with a 2-0 victory over 10-man Ankaraguku featuring a brace from Umut Bozok.
The visitors have picked up 48 points from 31 games this season and sit seventh in the league table. They will now be looking to build on their latest result when they play on Thursday.
